VEGAS MONEY HOLDER

I made this money holder for my daughter who went to Las Vegas this weekend  However I didn't get it in the mail in time.  My other daughter is going in two weeks.  I had also made it for a challenge which required 2 buttons, 1 ribbon and 3 flowers.  I missed the deadline.  So I added another button.  I don't know where time goes.  The papers is from DCWV.  The center label and rhinestone frame are Spellbinders.  The ribbon is   "The Girls Paperie".  The buttons and flowers are from my misc embellishment drawer. "Vegas" is from "Tie The Knot".  All of the embellishments are attached with foam tape.
Janis at PAUSE, DREAM,ENJOY is having a foam tape challenge.
